Ever since Hurricane Katrina, it's been Ramona and her family against the world. But when her sister Hattie gets pregnant, Ramona knows that her dream of getting out of her small town is slipping away. The return of childhood friend Freddie provides a welcome distraction, but as Ramona's feelings for Freddie grow, she begins to question whether her identity as an out-and-proud lesbian fits as well as it once did. A nuanced exploration of poverty, sexuality, family, and joy.

Pay no attention to the awful cover, because this book kicks off one of the best fantasy trilogies of the last few years. Kestrel's people conquered and colonized Arin's country.

This is historical fiction at its best. A blend of past and present tells the story of the Tulsa race riot of 1921. A tied-in mystery keeps the story moving, but it was the history of Greenwood that kept me from putting this book down.
